Divabetic is the brainchild of Max Zydek, former personal assistant to Luther Vandross for ten years. After Luther's death from diabetes complications two years ago, Max created this organization to honor Luther's name and to get the word out about properly managing diabetes care in the United States. With his Glam More, Fear Less motto, the philosophy is take care of the entire woman, inside and out, from healthcare to image, nutrition to nail care…the message is a holistic one and is really make a difference in the lives of those who have attended.
Divabetics has created a wonderful outreach program to assist women living with, at risk or affected by diabetes with its Makeover Your Diabetes events and recently gained major sponsorship thru pharmaceutical company, Novo Nordisk.
The highlight of the evening will be a fashion show with Diabetes Health Care Educators from the various cities participating as models and role models. The fashion show will be hosted and commentated by Catherine Schuller, AmaZe Magazine's Empowerment Style Editor, who brings her message of Know Your Shape, Show Your Shape™ to the Divabetic organization. "Image is all about being yourself on purpose, on discovering your own personal style and what it means to express it in harmony with who you really are and what you want your clothes to say about you." She is an advocate of her Shape Shopping with Figure&Fit™ program and will use it at her image booth at both events to instruct woman on how to figure out their figure types and what silhouettes look best to fit and flatter their shape.
